CCM 96 Birthday

It’s my turn to host again on Crafty Cardmakers and I have chosen a lovely easy one, Birthday. So any birthday project at all, cards, scrap LOs, a birthday gift, whatever you like.

CCM 96 Birthday2

We are sponsored by Di’s Digistamps with a $10 gift voucher and also by Hobby Art with a fabulous stamp set Hobby Art

I have used an image from one of our Sponsors, Di’s Digistamps called Izzy’s Birdhouse, and I have coloured her in with my copics and promarkers. I added some frantage around the edge of the image.

The papers are from various scraps I found laying in my bit box, so no idea where they came from originally, sorry.

The mat behind Izzy is a Marianne Die and the doily came from my stash. I wanted something flat that I can post for the lowest postal rate as I am sick of paying Royal Mail extra for lumpy bumpy envelopes. So there are no embellishments on this one apart from the Happy Birthday Peeloffs surrounding the whole of the matted image.

I am entering this into the following:-

Also I wanted to thank you for the tip about the blue tit.
